Maybe it is worth organizing something?

The big world and ancients show is usually in January
that is not useful if one understands fundeemental geography and can read a NYC Subway map. Like what station do I get off to get to Rochester on the A train.
Your opening statement stated there are no coin clubs or shows in NYC. The replies showed a preponderance of both. So not only do we have to Google for you, now we have to be your travel guide.
Every post you make seems to have some kind of agenda to it. I am done reading your stuff
I'm sure he will work in that everyone in the hobby is a crook buying and selling stolen goods. Just ruben playing games here.
http://coinshows.com/new-york-coin-shows.html - not everybody lists with CoinZip, although for NYS there are slim pickings.
Thankfully for myself and @expat CT allows more than 5 ignores.
Don't forget, he'll also make sure to work in how the police don't do their job.
You forgot to mention that those electricians are REQUIRED to be Union. Even if your bulbs work you're not allowed to plug in your own extension cord either.
that shows nothing in NYC
The union at the Javitz Center makes that so. Coin clubs don't need the Javitz Center and shouldn't use the Javitz center. Phili has a big coin show. I don't know if they have clubs.
Having a regular coin club meeting every month with tables might be nice
You really want an answer for that?
You need either a company that's willing to let you use their training room after hours and that means you need a high ranking member of the company as a member of your club... With increased security needs that's all but impossible.
And renting a semi-public room for 30 people will cost you $500 an hour in Midtown.
I don't know of a single club that can put $12,000 a year toward just room rental. If you have 50 members and only 30 show up that's still $240 a year in dues just for room rental.
I think one of the local clubs pays 200 bucks a month to the botanic garden, and the other ones all make equivalent donations to the churches.
And that still means that room rental is the largest cost we have as a club...
We have churches, and hotel exhibit spaces for larger shows, universities, schools, and it doesn't need to be in Midtown. We have, and this is a great local, BARS that are largely empty at night all around Wall Street that have rooms they use for football mock drafts and such. What we seem to be missing is a desire to get organized. You don't think we can find space in Coney Island? We have diversee space that can handle space large and small. It seems to be a cultural thing in New York.
